'The Biggest Loser' Ex-NFL Lineman Says .. You Jacked My Logo!!!

6/6/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"The Biggest Loser" needs to drop more than weight ... its new logo is a total rip-off, according to a new lawsuit filed by former NFL lineman LeCharles Bentley.

Earlier this year, the NBC show decided to drop its original tape measure logo for a new stylized "BL." Bentley, a former Pro-Bowler, says 'Loser' screwed up because he trademarked a very similar logo in 2013 for his O-Line Performance company.

Bentley says he sent a cease and desist letter, which was ignored ... so now he's suing NBC Universal and the producers for trademark infringement. He wants the logo changed, and a cut of the revenue 'Loser' made while using the new one.

Luckily for all involved, this will be handled by lawyers -- LeCharles goes 6'2", 300-plus pounds.

EXCLUSIVE

"The Biggest Loser" is under fire by former contestants, but a past champion says the woman blaming the show for regaining tons of weight needs to take a look in the mirror.

Ali Vincent won 'BL' season 5 -- and recently gained all her pre-show weight back.

But unlike Suzanne Mendonca and others, Ali says her weight gain was her own fault and she's working hard on her own to get it off.

As for the class action lawsuit Mendonca says she's filing ... Ali calls it "preposterous." She had other choice words for 'BL' haters.

Suzanne Mendonca says "The Biggest Loser" ruined her life, making her fat, unhealthy and flat broke ... but sources connected with the show say she's just a malcontent. 

Mendonca was in NY Monday when she told our photog she's gained a ton of weight since appearing on season 2 of 'Biggest Loser.'  

There are more serious allegations ... Suzanne claims the show withheld water, overexercised them and simply discarded them when the cameras stopped rolling.

Show producers tell TMZ, "We stand by the integrity of the show. The safety and well-being of our contestants is, and has always been, our #1 priority."

Bob Harper came on "TMZ Live" recently and talked about the difficulty of keeping weight off after the show.

Ajay Rochester -- who hosted Australia's version of "The Biggest Loser" -- just had 1.5 Liters of fat sucked out of her body ... but first, she bellied up to a 1,000 calorie breakfast of bacon, eggs and hash browns.


Ajay hit up Dr. Aaron Rollins Friday at Elite Body Sculpture in Bev Hills, and got something called an Airsculpt Laser Lipo -- a fancy name for precision fat sucking. We're told Ajay was 100% awake for the procedure -- no needles, no cutting, no stitches -- while the doc targeted her chin and arms.

Jillian Michaels is a quitter ... after announcing she's leaving "The Biggest Loser" ... she's high-tailing it out of the Hollywood Hills.

Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Michaels just sold her 3-bedroom modern for $2.15M ... her asking price. Her real estate agent was none other than Reza Farahan from "Shahs of Sunset."

Pretty cool pad ... gourmet kitchen and an outdoor pool.  A little surprising ... no home gym.

We're told Michaels is headed for the 'Bu -- where gyms are unnecessary because everyone's already skinny and beautiful.

Fitness guru Cara Castronuova isn't very discriminating ... she'll go on a date with ANYONE who's willing to pay the asking price -- $10,000.

Cara -- an ex-trainer on "The Biggest Loser" -- tells TMZ she's raising money for her charity -- Knockout Obesity -- by offering a romantic evening in NYC with anyone who ponies up 10 grand.

The best part ... she's open to men and women.

Cara says she hopes to go on at least 3 dates so she can send 50 overweight kids to fat camp. She's moved by the heartbreaking letters she gets ... including one from a boy who told her he desperately wants to shed lbs so other kids will stop pinching his stomach.

So what do you get for your money? Cara says the date consists of dinner at a really nice place and then seeing the new Rocky musical on Broadway.

But here's the deal ... you have to pick up the tab for dinner ... and pay your own way to NYC.  She'll take care of the theater tix.

There could be an added bonus ... she says, "Maybe I can find love and kill two birds with one stone."

"Biggest Loser" trainer Dolvett Quince still isn't happy with winner Rachel Frederickson's weight -- after she dropped from 260 to a scary 105 pounds -- but he tells TMZ, he's determined to get her healthy.

Rachel won Season 15 earlier this month ... but her dramatic weight loss shocked viewers, who claimed Rachel had lost TOO much weight, bordering on anorexic-looking.

And it appears Quince agrees -- he tells us, "We're going to get her healthy. She's going to be alright ... She's getting healthier every day."

Quince says he's still working with Rachel -- pro bono -- and has a plan to help her get better.

Jillian Michaels 'I Guess I Need Cara to Train Me' 'Biggest Loser' Star Hits Back At Co-Star After Triathlon Diss

9/17/2013 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

More smack talk in the war between two former "Biggest Loser" co-stars -- this time Jillian Michaels is firing back at Cara Castronuova with some good ol' fashioned venom-laced sarcasm.

We broke the story ... Cara -- who was a trainer on the show -- ripped Jillian apart over Michaels' poor showing at the Malibu triathlon earlier this month, calling her an embarrassment.

This weekend, Michaels returned to Malibu -- where she offered up some brand new excuses for her abysmal showing (bad wet suit, bike problems, a horse?) and vowed to do better in the race next year.

Then, it was open season on Cara.

Check out the clip -- we're guessing these two ain't opening a gym together anytime soon.

Jillian Michaels didn't just SUCK ASS at the Malibu Triathlon -- she was an EMBARRASSMENT -- so says her former "Biggest Loser" co-star Cara Castronuova.

As we previously reported, Michaels was a disaster at last weekend's big race -- admitting to TMZ she got beat by a bunch of people a world class fitness professional shouldn't have lost to ... including an 80-year-old.

But when we ran into Cara last night in L.A., the former B.L. trainer didn't pull punches -- telling us. "I would probably kill myself if that happened to me."

Cara said Michaels likely bombed because she didn't take the event seriously -- "That's what happens a lot with people that think they're in really good shape. They take things lightly and then they embarrass themselves."
